It seems I’m no longer allowed to comment.
Earlier today, I put up a post called ‘Tally’, detailing the projects I’ve completed in 2015. It was full of links back to the projects on my blog. I suspect this has prompted WordPress (or more properly Akismet) to decide that I’m a spammer. I was able to make one comment before the post went up at 8.30am my time (hello, Snail of Happiness!), but after that, every time I’ve put a comment into the comment box on a blog post, it has disappeared. I think I’m in your spam box… 😦
(This means you, Catbird Quilt Studio, Manic Mumdays and Live.Grow.Nourish.Create. Please could you check and let me know? And mark me as Not Spam if possible?)
I’ve now taken ‘Tally’ down, in case you’re wondering why the link in your Reader won’t work. I don’t know if it’ll fix the problem but it’s worth a try. I tried to find a way to contact Akismet, but can’t see anything: lots of FAQs which don’t apply but no little box to write my problem in and ask for help. I have a query out on the WordPress forum but so far, no joy.
I feel as if I’ve been chopped off at the knees. Commenting is so much a part of my blogging life, and I worry that people will think I don’t care. Failing a one stop solution, all I can do is visit every blog I follow, comment on something and hope you’ll find the time to check your spam box and make me persona grata again…
If anyone has any experience of this, I’d be really grateful for suggestions on how to fix it.
